    We are using Categories. Happy to connect. I don't have a solution to the assignment issue but can say we suffer the same problem for assignments of induction training. I raised a feedback feature request with Bridge asking them to make it possible to set due date from the learner's last hire date field.  No new feature yet but it might be helpful if you requested the same?

    Hi Emily...I have Categories set up, but can't say that they are being used. Thanks for your willingness to connect; how can we do that? My email is cclark@beaconpointe.com. Thanks!

    In the most recent Best Practices webinar, there was reference to Categories. The presenter was able to show categories being displayed in the Learning Library which is the first I have seen of this. I have assigned all of our training to a category for the day that we are advanced enough to target certain training to certain groups, but I have not assigned any of the Categories to any Groups. Can I assume that if I assign the Category to a Group that it will be visible in the Learning Library as part of that Category??? Thanks!

    Hi Chris, 

    Yes if you assign the categories to groups those groups will appear as subheadings in the Learning Library with all of the categorized content available in those categories. An example is "Leadership Training" in the image below.

    Hi Chris,

    I have not mastered the categories yet, (will be trolling for best practices) however, in regards to new employees showing up prior to hire date.  We had that issue as well.  I asked IT to amend the criteria to synchronize the new user 1 day prior to their hire date.  This also eliminated erroneous records being created if the candidate is never hired.

     Our new users are created when the IT team sets them up in Active Directory, so we get new employees entering the system 1 to 3 weeks before their start date. https://www-krogercomfeedback.com
